It might be something from the playground, but using a skipping rope to get fit is one of the best ways to blast fat and burn a ton of calories!
Skipping for just 15 to 20 minutes can burn off the calories from a candy bar.
Not only that, but it is inexpensive to buy, it’s small enough to fit into any bag, and you can use it just about anywhere.
You can burn between 600 and 1 000 calories an hour by skipping. Even if you only do 15 or 20 minutes, that’s still a ton of calories!
The benefits of skipping
If you don’t have a lot of time, or if you don’t want to commit to a lengthy gym contract, try skipping to help shed extra weight and trim down.
Skipping for weight loss
Skipping strengthens the upper and lower body, and it burns many calories in a short period of time.
So if you’re looking for something quick and easy to do every day to help you lose weight or get fit, give skipping a try!
